Fantastic !!! We were there on the 13th September for the Millwall game, the hospitality is amazing, the food superb and the match was very good. My husband was there for the dream ticket, man of the Match sponsor, amazing I have never experienced something as awe inspiring. Thank you Ipswich Town Club for everything.

Early Saturday kick-off was a new experience for me, but it worked just fine. We left the hotel about 8 am to get breakfast at Liverpool Street Station before the train set off from London towards Ipswich at 9.30. The train ride to Ipswich was about 1 hour. When you leave Ipswich Station, it's impossible to miss Portman Road as... More

We visited the ground 2 weeks ago as away supporters, our first issue was once we got to the turnstile we were told to take the caps off of our sealed lemonade bottles, no explanation as to why and as we had two each, one was for the game the other for the train journey rendering it wasted. The seats... More

Been several times to Portman Road to watch Ipswich Town. Some good, some not so good games. Staff friendly and always helpful. Go with friends with season tickets so seats very good. Would recommend going, atmosphere always good amongst fans.

Was a bit concerned about seeing barry manilow here as had heard bad things said about stadium! But no problems, brilliant seat near front and barry was fantastic as always, very good support act as well. Staff very helpful getting out and everyone seemed on a high! Well barry does have that effect on you!!

Went here to see Barry Manilow who was very good but I was very disappointed with the organisation at the stadium. Slow to get in due to 2 turnstiles being open, check ticket, put a wristband on, luckily we got there early. A lot of people had to move seats due to someone changing the seating layout, I understand these... More

Good stadium right in the middle of town, very easy to drive to, train station is close. Seating has little legroom. Stewards OK.Food adequate. Seat Prices - a scandal, they seem to live on past memories of their own importance and charge accordingly.

There are not many grounds you can go to called "friendly" but I've always found Portman Road to be just that. Close to the railway station (5 mins walk) with a hotel in between giving a well organised away fans bar. The seating is good, view fine (side view, not behind the goals), stewards human, pies good and decent space... More

It seems like a reasonable stadium, better than the football team that takes its name. I can't believe the ticket prices to see the games, I suppose this has to be the case to pay the ridiculoudsly inflated salaries of the team. When I used to go and see Chelsea I could easily afford to go in on the ordinary... More

The people were behaving, I felt save the entire time. The atmosphere was great, a lot of cheering, even after the home team was being led 2-1. The chairs in very good condition, mostly clean, not too big to be intimidating, but protected from rain for most parts. The grass was looking awesome. The food / drinks are not the... More
